Mágor plain

The Mágori Hill located next to the Vésztő-Szeghalom highway and its surroundings have been nature protection areas since 1978. At this time the size of the nature protection area was only 13 hectares. As a result of the continuous enlargement the size of the nature protection area, which is called Mágor plain and is closed round by the horseshoe lake Holt-Sebes-Körös, is 947 hectares, and it is one of the units of Körös-Maros National Park. Thus the most valuable historical treasure of the Great Plain and its surroundings form an integrated unit. The speciality of this plain is that the vegetation of the secondary forms of landscape - the alkali grasslands-, and the characteristic communities of plants in the oxbows and gallery forests suggesting the times before drainage, can be seen in a rather small area. The patches of loess fields and the strongly alkali fields with Camphorosma annua can be studied next to each other. Among the protected plants the endemic Transsylvanian plantain, the slender star of Bethlehem and Aster sedifolius dazzle the visitors in many places. Lots of individuals of the highly protected water chestnut live in the oxbow lake. This plant was very important in the earlier centuries when there were famines, as people collected its fruit and after grinding used as flour for human consumption. Among the nesting waterfowl, the characteristic deep voices of bittern are heard from the middle of March till the end of April. The grassland and the riverbed of oxbow lake Holt-Sebes-Körös are good feeding places for the grey herons, quawks and little egrets. The corncrake and the quail also nest on the grasslands where the grass is higher. The bustards also choose these plains for rutting.
The horseshoe-lake Holt-Sebes-Körös closes the Mágor hill round, on the top of which the remains of the ancient monastery and living quarters of Csolt clan catch the eye. The very special display of rich history of the region and the excavating places is unique in Hungary. The visitors can take a walk round the statues of classical Hungarian writers of rural literature as well.
